At one point, in the UK at least, it seemed that style mattered far more than substance for successful bands and artists. But in 2021, in the online age, I wonder whether it's still true. It was a BBC article about a band from Wigan with a chart-topping album that prompted my question. Now, there was a time when someone like this--without a carefully contrived, fashion-friendly 'image'--would have stood little chance in the charts. Any thoughts?

Poor old Hancock. With the help of the media, how long until it's his turn to be flushed away with the scum of the government's collective wrongdoings clinging to him like a wad of unflushable wipes?

Following a wave of verified footage made public, a pentagon report into UAPs [unidentified aerial phenomena] is due this month. Many think it will be a request for more time to study things. But the fact that it's happening is something in itself. As is the topic featuring on 60 Minutes [link below]. Navy pilots describe encounters with UFOs - YouTube

I'm just curious about this. Would you consider making your next car an electric [or do you already own one]?

An article on the BBC 'Elbow frontman Guy Garvey says the way artists are paid for audio streams is "threatening the future of music". "That sounds very dramatic," he told MPs, "but if musicians can't afford to pay the rent... we haven't got tomorrow's music in place."'

I see that Gary Numan has an autobiography out in a few days [in the UK at least]. I've never been especially fond of his stuff -- neither strongly liked or disliked it -- but I'll be interested to read whether he talks about his work with Bill, and perhaps the influence that led to it. Anyway, I thought I'd post about it for anyone interested... https://www.amazon.co.uk/R-evolution-Autobiography-Gary-Numan/dp/1472134621/ref=sr_1_1?crid=131ZZSS2X5VH1&dchild=1&keywords=gary+numan&qid=1603127027&s=books&sprefix=gary+numan%2Caps%2C274&sr=1-1

Currently reading The Magical History of Britain by Martin Wall -- enjoyable and enlightening.
